Link: Court Clears Way for Mobile-Phone-Unlocking Lawsuit Against T-Mobile

Wireless-carrier T-Mobile USA lost a California Supreme Court bid Wednesday to kill a lawsuit challenging the company’s early-termination fees and its practice of locking down phones to work only on T-Mobile’s network.

Without comment, the high court’s seven justices declined to review two lower-court decisions that allowed the lawsuit. The case could ultimately revamp the relationship between mobile-phone carriers and their customers.
